Tho main body of the building is already covered In; tbo coat of this portion of it, we believo, will bo something like £12,000, Last night, n few minutes bofore twelve, some diabolical irrotahos mado a clumsy attempt to destroy this line structure by blowing it up with gunpowder. In tho room in which is tho principal chimney, a j.ir of gunpowder, eapablo, it is supposed, of holding some two gallons, was exploded ; but the effect, far from being what tbe perpetrators of the outrage intended, was only fo mako a few unimportant crocks in ono side of the lower part of the chimney, and to knock off some of the plaster from tho coiling—thirteen feet bigb—and walls. Tbo effect of the explosion was doubtless le...

A Xew House for tbe President. The propriety of building a new Presidential Mansion is being discussed by some of our cotemporaries. The location of the present mansion is unhealthy. The river and low grounds in the vicinity are fruitful of chills and fever. Few occupants of the White House hive escaped sickness in the summer. 3Ir. Buchanan has prudently retired to the country for the season, coming into the city every day for the transaction of business. It is suggested that the present building might be used as tha official residenco of the President—tbe place where foreign ministers, government officials, and all having business with the Executive should see him—whilst a private residence for him should be erected in a healthy and retired place, somewhere in the immediate neighborhood of Washington. We warmly approve of the plan, and so, we think, will everybody who understands the matter. It is also proposed to erect residences for tho sevoral cabinet officers. This, too, sh...

Yacht Voyage to X,iTernaol. The Liverpool Post, in its issue of July 2it, says:— " The arrival at this port yesierday of the yacht Charter Oak, from New York, i'urnishes a striking proof of what perseverance can accomplish, and shows to us English the sort of stuffour trans-AtUntic cousins are made of. The Charter Oak is a little vessel, fortythree feet long, thirteen feet wide, five feet three inches deep, and measures twenty-three tons. She was built and rigged by her captain and owner, Mr. Webb, in Connecticut, and by him and one man brought safely across the stormy Atlantic, in thirty-seven days. She started with the captain and two men, but one of them was unfortunately lost overboard the first day. To most men this would have been enough to frighten them off this perilous enterprise, but our two undaunted navigators (one of whom had uever been at sea before) were not to be frightened. Without a chronometor, (for no one would trust one in so ftail a conveyance,) without a cha...

PjtosEMTisit in I.v»j.i.—We believe we may asquit the missionaries of having administered undue excitement. To speak the truth, their 111-succeda has been so signal as to be a complete answer to tho insinuations of Lord Ellenborom'h. But there is another kind of proselytism which has become extromeiy dangerous—proselytism, direct or indirect, by officers and their wives. The altered and (we may add) the improved moral condition of military society, through tho gr'it augmentation in tho number of married oSccrs. has been balanced by many ineonventencoa oer.is.
